Note to self: don't be sarcastic on the internet, people don't get it. ;)

I'm obviously not gonna quit early, but chances are I will contribute next to nothing to the battle.

Just wanted to test out the Chaffee, so I bought back the M5 to unlock Chaffee, no problems with the M5, could be better but it´s not that bad, just sit in a bush and scout. Did the 55k xp in about a week:

Last day of the grind I did 25k xp in 25 games...

Best thing you can do is to plainly state that you're sarcastic... even smilies might not work 100%. :)

Just rebought the M5 today and have racked up 20k exp in the space of about 40 games. Not a brag, just saying that getting pitted against higher tier enemies is never a bad thing when driving a light tank.

 

Last time I had the M5 I just unlocked the M7 and had done with it, but now with skills acquired as I have progressed in the game I have come to admire how well this little thing can passive scout.

 

You have the speed and acceleration to get into forward positions and once fully immersed in a bush with a competent crew you can just spot the enemy all game long.

 

In the 40 games played since buying it back my best game, in terms of experience earned, I never fired a single shot. An that is what this tank is all about, sure you have the speed to fly around towards the end to hunt arty but you have great view range, and that is such an under rated asset to the team.

 

As a side note its making some decent money too, and with the scouting missions this weekend I should easily have enough for the Chaffee.

I played the 5 a lot this weekend and now have 6th sense.   I'm really having a lot of fun with it.    On one game someone typed "You're just playing a tier 4 scout for kicks aren't you?"   why else play?

duely noted it was also one of the first tanks i played in WoT when it was released. stats are from pre-historic days, only played five battles or so with it now.

Very good tank, and very capable of carrying a game with the howitzer...(by good spotting at first and putting some holes in low tiers)

 

Made 3 Mastery badges in 2 days.

Don't even have 100% crew, that thing just be a beast with six senth and full camo!

 

Edit: Just seen the nerf for9.3...OMG this will be awfull. Glad i'm palying it now!

everyone thinks that ligth tanks sucks..... but for me is this the best gameplay ever..... your thing too do in batlles is to [edited]tanks around to they get angry and want too kill you but you lead them too the fire range of your tanks..... and make circles around them the chaffee is the best ecsample off that...... sry for my english

The only thing i hate about it is the turn speed and the fact it bleeds speed when turning. hellcats turns better i swear...

You do know that since a lot of time it only gets up to tier 7 matches,

and that you surely have no clue about scouting?

I rebought as well, sadly I still don't have a 100% crew on it, but I'll manage. However, that Ace eludes me...1.3k dmg, 5 kills, 913XP is not enough. Ok, after seeing these numbers posted above, I can understand it.

Still trying to get the hang of the bush scouting..works great at one time, next time I'm dead...I imagine Sixth Sense would be really helpful on this..

Yeah, this is exactly why I grind it now :) Actually checked my stats, my highest XP with it was 13xx XP...no ACe. But maybe that was before these medals were introduced, but I was quite a noob back then..
